Thanks to all Pentathlon teams. The computing power during the race was roughly 5 times more then before. 250 teams, 9122 user and 15477 computer were active in the last days.

Windows Users-please abort Nbody tasks

Per Project Scientist Sidd:

It seems that it is only occurring for people with windows. The other platforms seem to be running ok. We had some trouble getting the binaries for windows in order to release, I am thinking something went wrong there, as none of the windows runs are passing. I took down the Windows version for now until I figure it all out.

If you are a Windows user please abort all N-body tasks and go into Preferences and uncheck "MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation" for now.

Thank you.

New Nbody Version 1.50

Hey all,

We have released a new version of Nbody. There are a few changes in this version. First and foremost, we changed the way dark and light matter in our model dwarf galaxy is assigned. Previously, we would have all the particles have the same mass and assign a certain number as dark or light, depending on the parameters of the simulation. This required a large number of bodies in order to get a good likelihood calculation. Now, we will have the same number of dark and light matter particles, but change the mass per light and dark matter particle in accordance to the parameters. This will allow us to lower the number of bodies from 50k to 20k, allowing for a much faster initialization and simulation run time.

Secondly, we have moved the assignment of dark and light matter from lua to c, which should also provide significant speed up in the run time.

Also, we fixed a number of bugs we found in the velocity assignment. All in all, a simulation should run at a fraction of the time previously. This will also hopefully fix the stalling issue some people have been having.

Finally, if you have any runs from the previously version, you can go ahead and abort them.

Since this is a new way of doing things, there may be some unforeseen issues. So, if there are any bugs let us know!

Yesterday and tonight we had a powercut. The sysadmin restarted the machine but he did not realize that apache was not running. Now it should be all fine.

Damn that's big :)

It "should" work. For now I just created 10,000 WUs, to test the estimation.

Even as World Community Grid computations continue, the team behind the Clean Energy Project is busy improving their database structure, making their results more accessible to the wider scientific community, and authoring papers to disseminate the methodology behind the project. Also, look out for their new project website coming soon!

A milestone and a roadmap: progress in the fight against Ebola

Thanks to the huge level of support from World Community Grid, the team at the Scripps Research Institute has already received most of the matching data for the first target protein of the Ebola virus. While this data is being analyzed, the search now moves to another related protein with potential to help the fight against hemorrhagic fevers.
